iOS Question

Will geofencing events be called if the app is terminated in iOS 11?

I'm trying to call

for geofencing events when the app is killed (double tap home and swipe up by the user), but I'm not sure if this is even possible. From what I've seen, such as here, it isn't possible. However, I was wondering if something had changed in iOS 11, or if there was another way to do this?

Answer Source

After running many tests, I can confirm that Geofence Events are called, even when the app is terminated (swipe up). However, the user must have authorized location to be used when the app isn't running, and other background location functions, such as didUpdateLocation will not be called.
